With all the drama that is currently circulating around The Game, which includes possible jail time for punching an off duty police officer, recently losing $200,000 lawsuit, and being sued for sexual assault, it’s almost easy for one to forget he has an album dropping soon. Exactly how soon was recently determined when the Compton rapper took to Instagram to reveal The Documentary 2 LP due date and unveil the album’s cover art.
The cover for the project features a shirtless Game standing in front of a black fence looking menacing. It was shot by legendary photographer Jonathan Mannion. The album is now slated to drop September 25. “This album is better than my 1st for more than a few reasons,” Game wrote in the lengthy caption urging fans not to take his word for it, but to see for themselves.
Back in June The Game revealed the producers who contributed to the project naming Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Alchemist, DJ Premier and Scott Storch.
